A woman who shaved her head for charity has raised £1,200 for Macmillan Cancer Support.

Aileen Davis, from Hadston, did the deed at the end of last month.

And for the 47-year-old, the reason for braving the shave was personal, having lost her parents, sister and a work colleague to cancer.

She said: “The shave went really well and it was really uplifting, knowing that I was doing something to support such a good cause. I set out to raise £200, so I am over the moon that I have raised £1,200.”

Aileen, a churchwarden at St John the Divine, in Chevington, works at Alnwick’s Argos store. She had her head shaved at the shop, with Kelly Mallaburn doing the honours.
